The #Nintendo Switch still has ways to go before it can boast an impressive back-catalog of games, but each month sees an increase in the number of scheduled releases. September currently includes nine titles set to be made available on the console, which is considerably less than the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

Still, this is Nintendo we are talking about, so there is bound to be something special in that shortlist.

'Pokkén Tournament DX'

Developed by Bandai Namco Studios and published by The Pokemon Company, "Pokken Tournament" is a fighting franchise set in the loved world of Pokemon. It's inspired name reflects the style of the gameplay, as Bandai Namco lifted the fighting mechanics from their "Tekken" franchise and used it as the basis for their adaptation of the popular Nintendo series.

The Switch version is an enhanced port of the arcade and WII U "Pokken Tournament", but features the biggest playable cast out of the three. Players select from 20 different Pokemon to duke it out. It is mostly geared towards multiplayer, but there is a basic story mode which is mostly used to unlock the various content and to become accustomed to the gameplay mechanics.

'Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2'

Nearly all of the scheduled releases for September are ports of titles already available on other consoles, with "#Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2" being no exception. The story driven time sink received a positive reception upon release, although it was rightfully criticized for reusing most of the missions from the original game and failing to really enhance the visuals.

The Nintendo Switch version includes some DLC content right off the bat, like Goku Black, but other characters would need to be purchased.

More importantly, Bandai Namco confirmed that the Time Patrol Campaign from the original game will be included in this version and as well as the character of Demon God Demigra.

The biggest appeal is the ability to play the title on the go, as it runs at 720p on the handheld version of the Switch.

'Rayman Legends'

Release originally in 2013, "Rayman Legends" is a fast paced platformer which received great reviews across the board. This version is slated to serve as the definitive version; although changes seem to be minimal. When played in handheld mode, some touch screen functions will be implemented into the gameplay. Local co-op has also been added, up to four players, and Ubisoft has revamped the Kung Foot mini-game. #The Switch
